Our monthly IT Monitor brings you the most up-to-date and comprehensive salary information from across the IT industry, complete with the month’s vacancy trends and analysis.
The IT recruitment market place continues to mirror the economy as a whole, with growth in permanent and contract hiring. The growth in both demand and salaries within permanent IT staffing is a clear indication in the confidence that companies have about their business, and the economy as a whole.
While demand for permanent IT staff has been increasing through the year, the increase in salaries is a clear indication that employers are starting to recognise this trend. As we move to shortage of skills we see the first sign of “war for talent”; companies increasing salaries to compete for new hires.
The next step in this spiral is permanent staff previously not looking for a new role, realising they can achieve higher salaries in the open market and so starting to look for new opportunities, which then in turn creates more vacancies. This is a good time to be a candidate, and an increasingly challenging time to be an employer.
